    "I have been using these earbuds for a couple of months have no complaints. I wear these to the gym regularly and they stay in my ear through every possible exercise, I have worn them on runs and have faced no issues. Sound quality of these is good, nothing special but in no way bad. For the price, they are a pair of nice sounding earbuds that more than get the job done. These earbuds however do not have any in-line controls. Build quality of these is also pretty good. I have used them for long periods of time with no discomfort and despite the wire being very thin, it has withstood frequent use. What has impressed me the most is that i accidentally left these earbuds in my jean pockets and put them into the washing machine and then the dryer and, much to my surprise, they came out working perfectly and as a bonus they smell like fresh laundry. To conclude these are a great pair of headphones and, even though it is not recommended they appear to be washing machine friendly...just make sure you put them in the dryer as well."

    "These headphones are amazing! When I fly, I don't always want to get into a long conversation with someone I just met 10 seconds before. So what do I do? I I get my Sony MDR-NC13 headphones on, I find my mellow jams and lean back and close my eyes and off I go into the wild blue yonder! "
